Orange Glow Reported Over Cornwall

Could this be a case for Mulder and Scully in Cornwall?
Night workers in Launceston have reported seeing a strange light in the sky in the early hours of New Year's eve.
The orange glow, bigger than the moon, flew smoothly over the town for around 15 minutes before disappearing towards St Stephen and Egloskerry.
Andy Johnson was among those who saw it. He said: "What it was I really couldn't tell you - but it wasn't something that we'd normally see in the skies over Cornwall.
"Over the course of 15 minutes, I suppose, it lowered down and almost disappeared and came back up two or three times. Then it just seemed to move away into the distance and disappear altogether.
"I'm a bit of a cynic when it comes to these things - straight away I thought it was a helicopter search light. But it was way too big for that. And the movement - there wasn't any jerkiness to it. It was a very steady, graceful movement."
One of his colleagues was literally shaking after watching it hover above the town.
Drew from Padstow has also contacted Pirate FM to say he saw the same thing a couple of days earlier over Bodmin: "I'm actually an on-call firefighter and I know a bit about these Chinese lanterns that are going around. But I've got to admit it didn't seem like a Chinese lantern.
"I've got pretty good eyesight and you can actually see the fire flickering in these Chinese lanterns. This was a totally different shape - this was perfectly circular. The way they were moving wasn't in the way of a Chinese lantern."
If you spotted anything or know what it could be - we would love to hear about it.
